Closer Help Please! WHIP

Postby MoonCorps » Wed Apr 03, 2013 4:03 pm

I need to pick up a closer, and am having trouble deciding on my limited options. I'm thinking about Casilla, since it sounds like he might be sharing the closer role a bit with Sergio Romo, and will definitely be backup if anything happens to him. Also thinking about Jonathan Broxton, who's next in line for Aroldis Chapman; Jim Henderson who's likely next in line for Axford, who just blew his first save opportunity of the season. Or Andrew Bailey, who's probably next in line after Hanrahan. And there's also David Robinson, who's second in line to Mariana Rivera for the Yankees. Any opinions? Here are all the guys I could grab:

Santiago Casilla, San Francisco (next in line after Sergio Romo)
Andrew Bailey, Red Sox (probably next in line after Joel Hanrahan)
Jim Henderson, Milwaukee (prob next in line after John Axford, who just blew first save of the year)
David Robinson, NYY (second to Mariana Rivera)
Jonathan Broxton, Cincinnati Reds (just lost job to Aroldis Chapman)
Tyler Clippard, Nationals (next in line after Soriano)
Sergio Santos, Toronto (next in line after Casey Janssen)
Octavio Dotel, Detroit (closer by committee with Joaquin Benoit and Coke)
Mark Melancon, Pirates (closed opening day)

I plan on dropping David Murphy, who I just don't think I need, considering I already have a backup outfielder, and really need another closer.

Thanks for your help! I'll try my best to help in return.
